Pottermore Revealed

Oh wasn't such an excited thing at all. According to the video (which is pretty much awesome) it's an online community where we will be at Hogwarts. Interaction, some back stories (more than 18.000 new words by Rowling), some notes by Rowling and the books in digital format. We even get to a house by a quiz. Ehmmm...we already have those in various forums and sites :/
Anyway, the additional info might be cool and you never know what else! The thing is we still have to wait til October and you can't submit your e-mail either XD

UPDATE: New info
For this groundbreaking collaborative project, J.K. Rowling has written extensive new material about the characters, places and objects in the much-loved stories, which will inform, inspire and entertain readers as they journey through the storylines of the books. Pottermore will later incorporate an online shop where people can purchase exclusively the long-awaited Harry Potter eBooks, in partnership with J.K. Rowling’s publishers worldwide, and is ultimately intended to become an online reading experience, extending the relevance of Harry Potter to new generations of readers, while still appealing to existing fans. As the Pottermore Shop develops, it is intended that it should include further products designed specifically for Harry Potter fans, offering a potential outlet for Sony products and services related to Pottermore. In keeping with Harry Potter’s international appeal, the site will launch in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish, with more languages to follow.
In the new website, the storyline will be brought to life with sumptuous newly-commissioned illustrations and interactive ‘Moments’ through which you can navigate, starting with the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s (Sorcerer’s) Stone. On entering, you choose a magic username and begin your experience. As you move through the chapters, you can read and share exclusive writing from J.K. Rowling, and, just as Harry joins Hogwarts, so can you. You visit Diagon Alley, get sorted into a house, cast spells and mix potions to help your house compete for the House Cup.


UPDATE #2: Photos of Pottermore here:

The Leaky Cauldron
JKR said if you're not sorted into you get even more exclusive content about your house.

Visit the website: Pottermore and watch the seriously AMAZING video by Rowling.

What do you think?


  1. Tad disappointed, I was hoping for an online game, something similar to WoW, with the magical worlds we've read/seen in the films, being able to interact with both players & characters in the books ....oh well, maybe one day.

  2. I did find these

  3. Not so exciting as I had imagined but still great because it kind of softens the pain of missing the books! :D

  4. Bummer that you don't think this sounds exciting. I really feel like this will be a completely unique, awesome experience that has never been done before by any book series ever! It's going to be amazing :)

  5. Yeah, I wasn't crazy excited about it either. Maybe if I re-read the books I'll get the excitement again, but right now, I don't really care about backstories. I was hoping for an eighth book. XD

  6. super. sounds like an awesome way to interact with the potter world and j.k.

  7. Hi it's me, I am also visiting this website daily, this site is actually pleasant and the users are actually sharing nice thoughts.

    Feel free to surf to my web-site ::
